Sciatica Q&A

Active Lifestyle Medical

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

The symptoms of sciatica vary from patient to patient. Pain that radiates from the buttocks and down into the leg -- usually only on one side -- is perhaps the most common symptom. The level of pain experienced by sufferers, however, is not indicative of the severity of the injury.

Other symptoms of sciatica include numbness, a tingling feeling in the buttocks and legs, and weakness in the calf muscles. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of sciatica, it is important to seek treatment.

What causes sciatic nerve pain?

Anything that damages the sciatic nerve or puts pressure on it can cause sciatica. Some common causes include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Trauma
  • Nerve damage from disease
  • Bone spur


To address the sciatic nerve pain, the specialists at Active Lifestyle Medical stress the importance of determining the exact cause of the sciatic nerve interference. Only then can an effective course of action be recommended.

Is sciatica pain curable?

Yes, it’s possible to treat the condition that is causing sciatic pain. The doctors approach the treatment of sciatica by relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve, which can completely reverse the effects of the condition for many patients.

Before treating your sciatica, the doctors carry out a comprehensive examination to determine the full extent of your health issues, not just the obvious symptom of pain. The specialists will provide expert care and wellness advice to help you avoid further flare ups from sciatica pain.

Can I live with sciatica pain?

There’s no reason to live with sciatic nerve pain. Even though sciatica pain may seem to come out of nowhere, the experienced specialists at Active Lifestyle Medical can build a life profile that will help identify factors that are contributing to your sciatica pain and offer solutions that can give relief.

With the right treatment and lifestyle changes, you can manage your sciatica symptoms and often eliminate them altogether. Concentrating on your overall well-being is an essential aspect of treatment. You’ll learn to view your lifestyle in an entirely new way, which will significantly reduce the occurrences of sciatic pain.

If you have been suffering from sciatic pain, seek help from the professionals of Active Lifestyle Medical to receive effective treatments that are long-time solutions. Your care will continue long after you have received primary treatment. Contact the office today for an appointment.
